Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Its good that you are using minoxidil.
It is a good hair growth lotion. Only thing is it will take at least 2 months to show its result.
Apart from this it is very important to take vitamin b complex, Protein, and iron supplements.
You can take it either in the form of supplements or in diet.
I am suggesting you trade names as theses supplements come with different name in different countries.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
